We are considering getting another cat. I've read the article on how to introduce the cats, but I have a few other questions. Our current cat is 9 years old. We had him and his brother for a couple of years but, when we moved, we left them with my MIL temporarily and his brother ran away. We couldn't find him so Cooper has been the only cat ever since. Now for my questions. If we do get another cat, would it be easier on him for us to get a kitten or an adult cat? Should we get a female so there won't be a fight to be the dominant male? (Cooper is neutered and the new cat will be fixed also.) Will it even be possible to get another cat with Cooper being an only cat for so long? Cooper has always been an indoor cat and he's quite spoiled. He's been with us longer than our children! If we do this, I want it to be as easy on him as possible. TIA for any insight!
